Managing nonprofit data involves a whole lot more than simply entering numbers and sorting them. Humans live and breathe, and the kind of data nonprofits amass is different than, say, a for-profit business. Throughout a client’s time with a nonprofit, case managers perform intakes and regular evaluations, all while adjusting services and coordinating care. The data that comes from these interactions is complex, but hugely valuable. When done correctly, nonprofit data management makes it easier to evaluate program effectiveness and in turn, improve outcomes for clients.
